Former Vision 2030 boss denies going for deputy governor’s seat

02 September 2016, 19:27 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - Former Kenya Vision 2030 development plan director Wahome Gakuru has denied going for a deputy governor’s seat in forthcoming general elections.

Gakuru, who unsuccessfully vied for Nyeri County governorship in 2013, maintained that he will still contest for County’s top seat and will search for a new running mate after parting ways with his ally Patrick Munene.

While speaking to journalists in Nyeri town, Gakuru dismissed rumours that he has agreed to be the running mate for former Mathira MP Ephraim Maina who is said to be eyeing the gubernatorial seat.

The aspirant said he believes he will clinch the seat in the next general elections having garnered more than 130,000 votes last time.

He spearheaded the country’s Vision 2030 development strategy during President Mwai Kibaki’s tenure.

Others vying for the Nyeri gubernatorial seat include businessmen Githinji Kinyanjui alias Cocorico, former Kenya Dairy Board chairman Machira Gichohi and Thuo Mathenge of Brade Gate industries
